Nunavik government trivia contest
The Nunavik Government web site at www.nunavikgovernment.ca has launched a new contest in an effort to interest — and inform — Nunavimmiut about Nunavik’s history and self-government.
Once a week the trilingual Web site will post two new contest questions.
A new winner will be randomly chosen each week from correctly answered submissions, according to the site’s webmaster Alain Rochefort, a long-time resident of Kangiqsualujjuaq who is now living in Quebec City.
Until Feb. 14, the contest questions are “when the Europeans first visited the region of Nunavik, they laid claim to Inuit lands. How did they inform the Inuit of their actions?” and “the Inuit continued to function as a self-governing society for a period of time even after the Europeans laid claim to their lands. When did this really change?”
A choice of possible answers are posted on the Web site, as well as other news, activities and information about the move towards increased self-government.
